middle-class in america. look, because of the president's bold leadership, we weathered the most ferocious economic storm this nation has seen since the great depression, keeping us from sliding into a depression, as some leading economists suggested. the president, from the outset, has understood that it's all about jobs. but there's a lot of business to attend to, just to keep us from sliding off the edge. well, ladies and gentlemen, the president knows one other thing -- it's more than about jobs. a job is more than a paycheck. it's about dignity, and it's about respect, and too many people have lost it! ladies and gentlemen, president obama understands that the longest walk a mother or father can make is the trip up a short flight of stairs to their child's bedroom to say, "honey, i'm sorry, you're not going to be able to stay at stewart middle school next year," or "you can't play on west tampa's little league next year, honey. we're going to have to move," because mommy or daddy lost their job or because the bank said we can't keep our house. my dad made that walk. when i w

requires probably a long answer, and i'll try to make it short. i think america is safer since 9/11, but we're certainly not safe. we have a long way to go. but i think we've made significant progress. i think we've shown that al qaeda can land most anywhere. where there is fertile ground, they're going to breed. now the latest, of course, is yemen, where there certainly is a significant challenge. al qaeda continues to inhabit areas along the afghan/pakistan border which, again, argues for success in afghanistan. but i think that we have to continue our emphasis and our focus on the fact that this challenge is not going away anytime soon. >> senator lieberman, to that point you are chairman of the homeland security committee. as al qaeda adapts its tactics, and we have seen it in recent weeks, the new things they are trying to do, has the united states kept up? are we ahead of them, if you will, not only in improving airport security but in looking overseas in our intelligence gathering or are we still ahead of the game? >> we're ahead of the game but this is a war. there are times
